      I'm waiting for provider to fill-out paperwork for my FMLA, I've sent Dr. Cardarelli a message on my chart, giving him the permission to send the company a release of my medical records. On another note Dr. Cardarelli is a wonderful humble/caring doctor. He was very proactive about my healthcare needs, and gave me a chance to express my health concerns. He simply took the time to just listen.
